Head of Private Equity

Head of Private Equity - Case Study

AN INDEPENDENT GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP BACKED BY THE EXPERIENCE OF OVER 10,000 ASSIGNMENTS WORLDWIDE.

Head of Private Equity

Sector: Private Equity / Investment Banking
Location: Melbourne, VIC

As one of the most revered private equity / investment management groups in Australia, who manage more than $100b funds under management, our client has a diverse investment grade across equities, private markets, infrastructure, and property.

With a focus on long term holding positions, our client has achieved unprecedented growth over the past decades. They are spoken about as a true Australian investment success story.

Issue

Over a six-month period, the group had lost its Head of Private Equity and the supporting Research and Transactions team. These departures were sudden. With a backlog of works currently ‘in flight’, the group determined that they would need to appoint an experienced Interim Manager with immediate effect. This appointee would need to develop the trust of the team quickly. In addition, they needed to provide the management and leadership of the private market’s investment portfolio and, in some cases, their overseas joint venture partners from day one. This was the catalyst for an interim manager who possessed a proven, known, and deep track record in private equity investment.

Solution

EIM turned this process around within one week. The Interim Manager we appointed had over three decades' experience running both domestic and global investment management organisations and was currently sitting on three boards of listed and unlisted entities. They possessed a hands-on style which was needed on this assignment. From day one, it was commented they were a trusted advisory to the CEO and the investment committee and to this day (twelve months later), they remain as a strategic investment advisor to the group.
